Hello,
I just bought a 1977 power wagon with a 440 in it. Only problem is it is overheating, I am no mechanic but I do lots of learning and skills myself. Which I have learned lots but I know overheating is BAD!!! can blow the engine and this truck I want to keep. I feel in love with it, my question is I cleaned the rad, i am going to replace the rad hoses cause they are old. Thermostat could be the issue but dont know what to do here to check?
Thanks
Chris

its probably the water pump. i tried to call ya back earlier but there was no answer. your thermostat is at the end of the top hose where it connects to the motor should be 2 bolts. if ya need hoses i have a couple in the back i also have a water pump brand new might even have a thermostat out there. i also have 2 new radiators so let me know what ya need.
